Tour recommendations for solo 30s married mother?

Jump to last reply

I am hoping to go to Europe in the next few years for the first time. I will be going solo while my husband stays home with our young son (he is not comfortable with the idea of both of us leaving our son behind, and I'd rather not travel with our son). I am currently 31 years old but will probably be closer to my mid-30s by the time I can actually go to Europe.

My husband is not comfortable with the idea of me traveling on my own, because he is concerned about my safety in a foreign country. He would much rather I join a tour group than go alone. I am not a complete novice to traveling; I lived in Taiwan for a year after I graduated from college and have also visited a decent number of other countries. However, I can understand his concerns and would like to put his mind at ease while I'm abroad. I also think that traveling with a tour might make things easier planning-wise.

I am hoping to join a tour that caters to a somewhat younger crowd (maybe 20s to 40s or even 50s) but is NOT a "party bus." I would like to go for about 2 weeks. I don't have a specific budget in mind yet, but I probably wouldn't be able to afford one of the higher-end luxury tours, so it'll have to be something more low-budget and affordable. I will be going solo, so a tour that includes a decent number of other solo travelers would be nice. I am mainly interested in the western half of Europe at the moment, especially France, Italy, and Germany. Also, I am an American of Chinese descent, if that makes any difference.

Does anyone have any tour recommendations for me? Thanks so much!
